Talking about -- James Blake's thirty year old alarm clock is starting to fail them I've been used in the same alarm clock for 29 years and it works just fine as long as it's standing outside can't laid down and then work that way I am to have been asked to be aware he had that lasted that long one person does have a food processors for thirty years still works like -- another person as a Honda many trailed fifty dirt bike since 1968 while announces 43 year old wife almost time for anyone -- As has my contention is hard to find their 22 years all good to hear that because -- -- a mustache they've had for 37 years. Haven't saved since they were seventeen years old I hope this as a man texting he had paid seventy -- that. Architects. BVL you and I both deputies. I have had mine for 37 years the -- through Google's virtual shaver that little throw it out that we negotiate November support -- I I very rarely remove all the -- there on site did. My daughter freaked out and ran away and hid under the covers she was scared you know -- -- that now it's time for sports here at WWL Steve Geller I'm a dad like golf not Monday. And good morning everyone the -- lost their second straight contest fully one or two to 97 to Sacramento in this movie king senator. The -- was outrebounded 47 of thirty. Capital star Anthony Davis feels it was too bad quarters that ultimately cost them this game. First and third quarter to 01. Third fourth quarter our quarter. Between -- and are somewhat certain orders for non producers of the recent Lebanon where shelters include. The -- now embark on a three game road stand starting tomorrow in Denver. This first set a franchise record with their eighteenth straight victory and -- it easily Tony Parker scored twenty points in San Antonio's 103 to 77 -- Of the Indiana Pacers in Indiana. The LSU baseball team has already lost as many games six weeks into this season as they did all of last year. The tigers have twenty wins eight losses and one tie in 2013 they finished the regular season for 48 and eight. LSU post -- state tomorrow before bringing SEC series against Mississippi State and Alex box stadium. Well it's what they've done for Kansas freshman and true Wiggins he announced that he'll leave school for the NBA but says he'll miss playing for the jayhawks. That was made the decision for the -- so much love here. And my teammates is just I'm being remembered the coaches there's something and I was sure knows how -- they get more from being a favorite sport my decision. The six foot eight -- is expected to go in the top three pick in June's draft. Derek Jeter says -- approach his twentieth big league opener tonight in Houston just like another opening day but. He knows it is it. They seem to be forty year old shortstop 813 time all star. I said he's retiring at the end of this season. And have the NCAA women's final 4%. As a pair of unbeaten have qualified for the national semi finals Notre Dame is in the final four for the fourth straight time after flattening Baylor 8869. And UConn improves to 38 you know by beating Texas a and M 69 defeat before. For -- sports talk which player on the saints is poised for a break -- year and -- the black and gold means in next month's draft. I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look explored simply about what you think the Santa what to do that they have not addressed in free agency what must they go for in the draft top. Priority right now -- is a sensor currently they have no -- snapping the ball to Drew Brees right in the Puente SSA is still out there Iranians than anybody else yet -- yet I think the right exactly so he's still a possibility to return other than that. I would definitely say a number two corner back. But right now other than. -- -- -- I -- Lewis I'm sorry other than he does with as the number one you have call replay and I'm not sure Patrick Robinson could be able to come back healthy in the fold a lot of questions at the number two spot a corner. All right we'll talk to you run -- entertainment or sports or WWL. Sleep deprivation it's a horrible thing make you lose -- memory trust. After many years of doing this -- -- right now. After write everything down otherwise forget it I didn't forget that we have your forecast coming up next here on this April 1 it is April Fool's Day probably politics and he joked that plan. Your forecast. Some patchy fog this morning otherwise that's gonna give way to some partly cloudy skies will be a mild day with a high around 77. Fortunate -- mostly cloudy and mild with patchy dense fog forming blows north to lake will be around sixteen south lake -- 65. In heading into Wednesday will start the day it was in dense fog the becoming mostly cloudy but warmer with a high around eighty. From the Eyewitness News forecast center I'm meteorologist Dave dust. All 62 in ten or fifteen Q and slide -- one person vaccinated 78 -- is that there wife went into the office last night. Went to the boss's desk gift wrapped the desk -- graphic computer monitor gift wrapped everything in the office. It's kind of a funny old joke that I guys as Dave my April fool's joke is on my wife I put a fake paternity test in the mailbox. I'm me she should love that get a kick out of it down to thank certain to get ideas about. -- players as they know April fools down on the began -- show today even though it is April 1 and we were talking about the fact that David Blake thirty year old alarm clock is starting to fail in my alarm clock is 29 years old I have a small refrigerator that I have in the newsroom that I bought in 1990s. So what does make them make that 24 years old. Other people -- tell me they've got a guy Yamaha outboard motors is thirty years old -- the president shotgun at sixty years old. As the president and attic fan it's 55 years old and still works. And then one person text me 87 -- avenue in said the they have a laptop that is forty years holes. I'm presuming that you were attempting to play in April fool's joke. I don't think they weren't laptops forty years. But I -- is that no fools don't know them. It's no April fool's joke. Or April fool's -- that does not gag at all you know the CEO of FaceBook. Earned a salary last year of one dollar. Am Mark Zuckerberg made one dollar officially last year that with the salary. He did catch in some stock options though worth 3.3. Billion. Dollars. Last year he cashed in 2.3 billion dollars of the captain and that he owns. 426. Point three million shares of FaceBook. Worth 25 point seven. Billion. Dollars so feel too bad for the guy who invented FaceBook and at Harvard dorm room bonus salary of one dollar last year. Yankees doing just fine themselves.
